January 22: Mercury sextiles Uranus and trines Jupiter
January 25: Mercury squares Saturn
Optimistic individuals -- anyone with big ideas, really -- can help connect you with others able and willing to help your cause. Enthusiasm goes a long way now, so make sure you tuck away any doubts and insecurities as you let people know how passionate you are and how confident you feel. Saturn's influence shows that you'll be asked to talk about what you want ... and why you want it. If your ideas are solid and you've done your homework, your plans will get the green light!
January 24: The Sun sextiles Uranus
January 25: The Sun trines Jupiter
These aspects prove most helpful if you have something new or different to offer. Whether you're interviewing for a job, planning an event, or meeting someone new, don't be afraid to showcase your uniqueness and optimism. Influential people are willing to help anyone with groundbreaking ideas -- you simply need to take advantage of all the opportunities floating around you. The Sun and Jupiter in a pair of Air signs (Aquarius and Gemini), not to mention Uranus in a fire sign (Aries), all bring an enormous amount of social energy. Make use of this networking bonanza!
January 26: Full Moon in Leo
Communication planet Mercury joins the Sun in Aquarius; both then oppose the full Moon in Leo. If you take charge in a way that respects others and demonstrates self-respect, people will pay attention and keep an open mind about your ideas. Expect a bit of drama, though, for not only is Leo a showy sign, but full Moons have a tendency to ramp up people's emotions. Saturn in intense Scorpio squares both the Sun and Moon, which means you'll have to prove yourself. But if you take into account the desires of others as you keep your emotions in balance and your ego in check, people are likely to support you!
